National STD Prevention Conference Takes Place Next Month

( - February 8, 2004) The 2004 National STD Prevention Conference takes place March 8-11 at the Philadelphia Marriotr Hotel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

According to the conference team, the purpose of the four day event is as follows:

"Economic, political, and other societal forces over the last couple of years have influenced the landscape of STD prevention. The focus of public health efforts toward preparedness for bioterrorism and the response to emerging infectious diseases such as SARS has challenged such traditional public health efforts as STD prevention. Simultaneously, STDs remain a public health problem. STD rates are increasing, particularly in certain populations, while public and private healthcare systems suffer resource losses in the face of new legal and management complexities. During this era of uncertainty, STD prevention efforts must remain constant, while evolving in approach with the changing times. We must continue to try to understand the socioeconomic and political dynamics around STD prevention efforts and identify strategies that help maintain and grow STD prevention programs. The interface of science, programs, and policy remains critical to moving STD prevention into the future. Toward that end, the goals of the 2004 National STD Prevention Conference are to:

  • Identify practical strategies for effective STD prevention services amidst shrinking resources, adversity, and a growing STD epidemic
  • Enhance integration and synergy between STD prevention and other prevention efforts related to HIV, unwanted pregnancies, and substance abuse
  • Enhance STD prevention in such settings as primary care clinics, private sector medical practices, HIV services, substance abuse programs, family planning clinics, schools, correctional institutions, and other nontraditional settings
  • Expand the understanding of STD prevention into its domestic and global socioeconomic and political context

This conference will bring together delegates from academia, public health departments, nongovernmental organizations, the private health sector, and policy-related organizations to explore these goals, to share successes, to ask new questions, and to seek new answers that will enlighten the movement of STD prevention into the next few years.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is pleased to co-sponsor this conference with the American STD Association (ASTDA), the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD), and the American Social Health Association (ASHA)."
